In search of what's next

Those who choose to ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

I've always thought that was an insightful comment. It's got you covered. I've always had my own saying similar to that. If you keep doing the same thing and keep getting the same result are you doing it right? Especially when you don't like the outcome?

Well, that's kind of how I'd describe some of the book I just read, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History by Thomas Woods. Ever wonder how government got so big and unweildy? It's in there. Ever wonder why you hear a few people complain about state's rights and wonder what in the world are they talking about? That's in there. Ever wonder why politicians can seem so unscrupulous compared to the old days? That's in there too, but then again politicians haven't changed much in our history for that matter. (Read it and you'll see what I mean)

Some things I learned, but should have known beforehand:
  • The civil war was not about slavery.
  • Woodrow Wilson was a one world government nut and a warmonger.
  • FDR was itching to give that day of infamy speech because he too was a warmonger. He betrayed almost every eastern block European nation during WWII. He was in love with communism. He bought his re-election with the "new deal".
  • Truman forced Russians back home to their death after WWII by drugging them.
  • JFK's dad bought his election for him with mob money.
  • LBJ bought his election to the senate via a local judge, who actually admitted it after LBJ croaked.
  • Nixon was a bigger liberal than everyone gives him credit for.
  • I think everyone knows just how much of a disgrace Jimmy Carter was to the USA.
  • Clinton bombed the Sudan back to the stoneage by destroying their main medicinal production facility in order to take attention away from his out of wedlock affairs and lawsuits. He also enabled radical islam to become prevalent in Europe by bombing the serbs into submission under the faulty rumor of them killing off the islam idiots.
There is much more, but these high points stuck in my mind as I read it. There's some fascinating discourse on the events leading to the civil war. This book should be required reading for high school students and college students, especially those enrolled in colleges with liberal professors who work really hard at re-writing history to their ideals.

Enjoy and have a great day!
